Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn Prelude Announced; 3 Short Stories Set Between Base Game & Expansion

Ahead of the launch of the Tales of Arise expansion next week, Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn, Bandai Namco has announced Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn Prelude.

This project will consist of three stories set between the base game of Tales of Arise and the upcoming expansion. Rinwell and Law, Kisara and Dohalim, and Alphen and Shionne will each have their own dedicated narratives.

These stories will start being released on November 3, 2023, via the official Japanese Tales of channel. Unfortunately, there is no word on English releases, but we’ll keep you all updated.

Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn is a story set one year after the ending of Tales of Arise. Alphen, Shionne, and the rest of the party meet a new character by the name of Nazamil, a misfortunate young girl who is the daughter of a Renan lord and a Dahnan slave. Players can anticipate over 20 hours of content, with new dungeons, costumes, sidequests, and boss battles.

Regarding carry-over boons, players will be rewarded various bonuses dependent on their achievement progress in the main game. But you will still be able to play Beyond the Dawn even if you haven’t yet beaten Tales of Arise, even though you’ll need the base game to even play this content in the first place. Characters will also start at predetermined levels in this expansion for balancing reasons.

Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on November 9, 2023.

Tales of Arise is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC.

We discussed the number of Tales of games that have never been localized and those that have never been ported, making most of the franchise notably inaccessible to contemporary audiences.
